National Center for Women & Information Technology (NCWIT)
NCWIT has three strategies to accomplish their goal of the meaningful participation of women in technology. Their strategies are to: 1) build capacity for NCWIT member organizations, 2) create and distribute multimedia resources, and 3) propagate awareness and outreach.
CERSE has worked with NCWIT since 2006 to conduct formative and summative evaluation of the organization’s activities, including an organizational effectiveness evaluation. All evaluation findings are reported back to NCWIT to encourage and facilitate mid-course corrections. The summative evaluation focuses on developing metrics to assess NCWIT goals and collecting the data for the metrics.
